Linda Crnic Institute

The Human Trisome Project

Did you know that people with Down syndrome have what we call a "different disease spectrum?" 

This means that compared to the typical population, they are protected from developing some medical conditions, such as most solid tumors, while being strongly predisposed to developing ​​others, such as Alzheimer’s disease and autoimmune disorders.​ The Crnic Institute's Human Trisome Project™ is the first and most in-depth precision medicine approach to understanding these phenomena.  

The goal of the Human Trisome Project is to elucidate how trisomy 21 causes a different disease spectrum.​​​


We'd love to tell you all about it. To learn more, visit the Human Trisome Project website:​​.
